Science labs grant
Rowan-Cabarrus Community College has received a $100,000 grant from the Cannon Foundation Inc. to transform existing space into a new, fully digitized radiography laboratory.
The college will combine the Cannon Foundation grant with a $900,000 grant from the North Carolina Community College System to upgrade its radiography laboratory and significantly update other labs and classrooms used to teach biology and chemistry courses at RCCC’s North Campus.
The new radiography lab will offer students state-of-the-art equipment, including the Quantum Q-RAD IQ Digital Radiographic System.
“The new radiography lab, with the Quantum Q-RAD IQ Digital Radiographic System, will greatly enhance our ability to prepare students for careers at our local and regional medical centers,” explained Terry Chapman, RCCC dean of health and public service programs.
In a controlled lab environment, students will develop entry-level skills using high-tech digital imaging equipment before they begin working with patients in a clinical setting, said Frankie Lyons, RCCC radiography program head.
“The new radiography lab will be a great benefit to our students, our health institution partners and anyone in the region in need of such care,” Lyons added. “We offer our sincere thanks to the Cannon Foundation and the North Carolina Community College System for their abiding support.”
The new radiography lab will require major renovations in RCCC’s 600 Building to upgrade electrical service, create space for the new equipment and provide a functional layout for instruction.
